    What is your "d:" drive ? - a DVD-Rom/CD-Rom ? or a hard drive ?

    Sorry, its a dvd rom, just googled it and the concensus is it could be used for system recovery?

    If it's your dvd drive and you have no disk in it then it depends where you are looking as to how it's reported. So, where are you looking to see it says full ?

    I click my computer icon, right click the DVD/CD-RW icon scroll down to properties and there it shows capacity 0 bytes and the diargram of the drive is completly blue. And the 2 little radio buttons show Blue=used space Pink=free space.

    yep thats normal as there is no drive in the machine there is no free space, it does something similar when there is a disk in there too that is non writeable, it just gives you how much data is on the disk and then still says theres no free space.

    Shouldnt worry about it totally normal.
